Edge Clear- Customer Funds

Are my funds secured or insured?

Funds held in Futures only accounts are not insured.  However, through our Clearing Firms (FCM), all futures customer deposits are kept in segregated bank accounts that are held separate from the working capital of the FCM.

This customer segregation protection is a core principle of the Futures industry. By properly segregating customer funds, the assets should be available should any event cause Edge Clear, or our FCM to no longer be in business.
